The Harris County Public Defender’s Office (PDO) was authorized by the Harris County Commissioners Court to represent indigent persons charged in the misdemeanor, felony, and juvenile courts. The office receives its cases by appointments from judges. Persons represented by this office can expect zealous representation from the combined experience of lawyers, investigators, social workers, and other administrative staff.
The Chief Public Defender, Alex Bunin, serves as a county department director who also works with other county departments to coordinate available services for indigent defendants. In particular, the Chief Public Defender will work with the Harris County Mental Health and Mental Retardation Authority, local law schools, and others to improve criminal defense, mental health treatment, and other services to indigent defendants.
